The original Baby Taylor (BT1) helped launch the category of the 3/4-scale “travel guitar,” offering new learners, young players and guitarists on-the-go an accessible option that doesn’t sacrifice tone for size. The BT1 features a solid spruce that yields surprising clarity and volume, giving it enough musical punch to make it a perfect travel companion for songwriting or keeping your skills sharp while you’re away from home. The Baby Taylor includes a soft gig bag.


A ¾-size Dreadnought that yields a surprising amount of tone.
